Mercury Over Maps 6. Saturday 14th July 19:30

The 6th installment event of the extended residency at Hundred Years Gallery by Bill Thompson aka prof_lofi

The evening will feature three performances: a solo by Steve Beresford (live electronics), a duo between Ingrid Plum (voice and electronics) and Ian Stonehouse (modular synth), and a duo between Phil Durrant (modular electronics) and Prof_lofi (Bill Thompson – live electronics.

Bill Thompson is a video and sound artist living in the UK. He is a self-described throwback to the 60s and enjoys breaking things to hear what they sound like

Steve Beresford was born in Wellington, Shropshire, UK in 1950. In 1974 he moved to London, to play piano with improvisers like Derek Bailey and also trumpet with the notorious Portsmouth Sinfonia. He was a member of the groundbreaking group Alterations (1977-1986), with David Toop, Peter Cusack and Terry Day. The group recently reformed.

Ingrid Plum uses her voice with extended technique, improvisation, field recordings and electronics, creating work that combines sound art, contemporary classical and folk music. Incorporating folk traditions and a student of Meredith Monk she is described by The Guardian as “gorgeously atmospheric vocal techniques woven around field recordings & electronics”.

Ian Stonehouse is Head of the Electronic Music Studios at Goldsmiths, University of London, and lectures in sonic art practice. He originally trained as a fine artist at Wolverhampton College of Art with experimental filmmaker Guy Sherwin. Ian is a member of the noise-improv-playback group Rutger Hauser and their splinter faction Rutger Hauser Digest (with Lisa Busby).

Born near London in 1957, Phil Durrant is an improviser/composer/sound artist who has devised his own virtual performance instruments using Reaktor. Recently, he has been performing solo, duo (with Phil Maguire) and trio concerts (with Mark Wastell and Richard Sanderson), using an analogue/digital modular synthesizer system.
